Monaco moves towards the sustainable development of the country. Its actions cover three main priorities:

1) the preservation of natural resources;
2) environmental protection and quality of life;
2) the fight against climate change through the reduction of greenhouse gases.

In this video message, Monaco shares examples and key strategies they are implementing to reach these goals.

For example:
- by using renewable energy, the objective is to reach 20% of its annual consumption in 2020
(Today, the deployment of sea water heat pumps for the heating and cooling of many buildings covers 17% of these needs)
- Monaco is committed to reducing its consumption patterns 20% by 2020
(through the implementation of an energy consumption monitoring policy of public buildings, among other examples)
- Urban Transport Plan
- waste management
